The TOW-2 is 70% accuracy with 26 AP right? What more do you want out of a damn ATGM?
Now imagine you would not have to pay 80+pts for this, but only 30-40 + 10/15 for infantry.
Which is why is why I suggest that it only be implemented on CFVs, leaving the broader IFV fleet with the current missile selection or the I-TOW/TOW-2/TOW-2A lineup. As such the CFV recon AFV lineup would be a tier ahead of the IFVs. TOW-2B, even if it was a 2800m missile (which I doubt it will be given how Eugen has handled other ATGMs) it would never be available on the M2A2 IFV because... Balance. If you want TOW-2B then take a M901 variant or M3A2, I guess we're saying it wasn't fielded broadly enough to give to the entire IFV fleet?
Thus USA gets a good long range slugger for the recon fight in the form of M3A2 and an incentive to take the line over cheaper options.
